i hope he's right about hixon. considering the amount of time he spent with him in new york I'm sure he knows what he got. one thing to remember, tho, is what he said about never having too many good players at one position...don't think that because we didn't draft a WR doesn't mean the interest wasn't there in the draft and that hes settled on the corps as is.
I agree that we may have had a few WR's on our radar in the draft, but with the comments he made about:
- Both Smitty & Lafell being established players (was kind of suprised he gave Lafell that respect although I do)
- Hixon's versatility and ability to play all WR positions and help in return game if needed
- Ginn's ability to stretch the field (although he needs to work on his hands) and mentioned that
- Joe Adams is "coming along nicely"
I think that they are settled and believe we can compete now with what we have in house and will only upgrade if something becomes available that is too good to pass up. He made no mention of Pilares, Gettis, or Armanti... not that I was expecting any.
